Wasn't a song that I ever warmed to from them, until I went and saw them live. Killing an arab was amazing live to end an incredible set.

Can't stand Jebediah, yet his Bob Evans stuff is OK. What's the difference? I think that it's the appalling whiny sneer he adopts for Jebediah - it sounds like being trapped in a swarm of mosquitoes. When he actually sings properly he's bearable.
